Archbishop-elect Jose Bettencourt's Arms and Motto Interpreted




Coat of Arms of Archbishop José Avelino Bettencourt


DESCRIPTION


At the focal point of the arms is a triple, inlaid eight-pointed star in the shape of a Greek cross, which recalls the words of Saint Paul in the Letter to the Philippians: “You will shine among them like stars in the sky, as you hold firmly to the word of life” (2:15-16).



The threefold star evokes the Church’s faith in the Triune God, as expressed in the ancient Nicene Creed.  Its cross-like shape alludes to the mystery of our salvation in Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Holy Trinity, while the third inlay represents the Holy Spirit, Patron of the Azoreans.  The eight points of the star refer to Mary, the Mother of God, and to the mystery of the Incarnation.  Mary is present as Mother of the Church and Patroness of Lusitania (Terra Mariae), also invoked since the seventeenth century as “Our Lady of the Bettencourts”.



The chevron is the heraldic symbol of Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, Patron of Canada and the Archdiocese of Ottawa, as well as the Archbishop’s namesake.



A black lion, the symbol of courage, rampant on an argent shield, is from the arms of the first Bettencourt to be granted this distinction in the later part of the first millennium.  It is found among the seventy-two shields in the Hall of the Coats of Arms in the National Palace of Sintra (Portugal), and appears etched in basalt over the house of the same name in Angra do Heroismo (Azores). 



The two lions on the chevron allude to the two branches of the Bettencourt genealogy united by the marriage of the Archbishop’s parents (Silveira Bettencourt and Soares Bettencourt).



The Latin motto – FIDES SPES CHARITAS – is drawn from the conclusion of Saint Paul’s hymn to love in the First Letter to the Corinthians:  Now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love” (13:13).   The deep red colour of the shield symbolizes love, strength and faithful service, while the scroll contains the armorial bearings of four of the various distinctions conferred on Archbishop Bettencourt: Commander of the Military Order of Christ (Portugal); Conventual Chaplain Grand Cross ad honorem of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta;  Commander of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem;  and Insígnia Autonómica de Reconhecimento of the Azores.

  2. We all knew a time when 1 BitCoin was worth more than $13,000 then it suddenly just crashed and now worth just $6,000.

    People never seem to know and understand the reason behind these drop and i will explain that to you.

    There was a total amount of BitCoin generated from the start by the developers at first and since its becoming valuable there was need to generate more of it. You all didn't get that right? Let me explain better.

    So imagine from the beginning the developers of bit coin generated 10,000,000 BitCoin at first. Now these 10,000,000 BitCoin circulated to individuals, so when the 10,000,000 BitCoin was already owned by individuals all over the world it started increasing in value.
    Now the developers saw that thier crypto currency has gotten more value but less individuals owned it, there was need to generate more of it for more individuals to own.
    And what better way is there to generate more of BitCoin?

    If
    1 BitCoin = $13,000.
    Then
    10,000,000 BitCoin = $130,000,000,000.
    So there is $130,000,000,000 in the internet.
    Then the idea came to the developers!!
    Let's crash the price of BitCoin, use the remaining amount to generate more BitCoin.
    That is:
    Since BitCoin has built $130,000,000,000 in the internet, cut the price and generate more.
    I mean
    1 BitCoin = $13,000 then Now
    1 BitCoin = $6,000
    So from 1 BitCoin, 2.2 BitCoin can be generated.
    Now the question is where is the newly generated BitCoin?

    It's are everywhere in the internet!!!
    Its in every website you enter.
    Its in every social media platform.
    Its anywhere in the world!!
    Its in North America.
    Its in South America.
    Its in Africa.
    Its in Asia.
    Its in Europe.
    Its scattered everywhere!!!
    All you need to do is start Mining it.
    Now how do you start Mining these crypto currency?
    There are lots of BitCoin Mining software I will recommend Web'Miner.
    Its a software developed by an organization in China "Soft Tech Geeks". Have been using it a lot, I Mine anytime I want and have been making a lot from it.

    Some will say, why is he sharing it now?
    Some will say, if that's how easy it is why not Mine alone? So you can get it all for yourself.

    Well the developers are smart, they put a mining limit to it. The idea was not for a single person to have it, or for a particular group of people.

    The idea was for everyone, everywhere in the world to posses these crypto currency.
